Welcome to my Fit For Fall Freebie! Today, it’s all about the ABS and waistline. I’m calling it our core crushers, so let’s get started and work that waistline. Bend your knees to protect the back, and let’s twist it out. Warming up through the spine, through the waistline, twist target tone that that tummy, suck in the gut. Now pull your abs in.
